According to a Karen Civil report, Bobby Shmurda, Rowdy Rebel, and members of their GS9 crew were arrested in New York City last night, at Quad Studios, along with Epic Records EVP of Urban A&R, Sha Money XL, who inked Shmurda and company to the label. In addition to the arrests, authorities also recovered several weapons from the studio. Shmurda will face charges, according to a Wondering Sound report, and while details are scarce on what the specific indictments are, the director of public information from the office of NYC’s special narcotics prosecutor had this to say to WS about the arrests, that are reportedly in connection with “violent incidents” including “narcotics trafficking”.

These arrests were the result of a long-term investigation. My office has a sealed indictment against a number of individuals.


Shmurda will be indicted tomorrow, December 18, in Manhattan Supreme Court. Until then, Shmurda and those arrested are being held without bail due to their prior charges.
